referencing The Player Part 2, 12", PGR 002

Really nice reissue of this slab of First Choice / Tom Moulton goodness.
Helpfully they joined part 1 and part 2 that were on either sides of the original 7".
Which is just as well as part 2 is possibly the best bit.
Some like the instrumental version which is on another 12 released at the same time.
I prefer this full vocal version which completely captures that inimitable philly sound - great strings, great band, great production and great vocals.
This 12 has also got a cheeky Orchestra only mix, and a vocal only mix which might be handy for some.
An essential.
